Mindfulness is the art of openly and actively paying attention to experience in the present moment. This workshop will include (a) an overview of what mindfulness is and how we practice mindfulness in meditation, (b) a brief guided meditation, (c) discussion of how mindfulness can be used to deal with difficult physical and mental states, and (d) how I teach this material in an undergraduate course.
